Sam has been making rag dolls to send to an orphanage in Indonesia but they're so cute, I've persuaded her to bring them to the Geham market first. She will have to top up her supply for the orphanage after the market, but she's stuffed so many legs, arms and bodies, I think she'll be able to make them in her sleep now. She couldn't find a pattern she was happy with, so she just made one up. Milly helped her name each doll and they all have their own individual name tag. If some of the names are a little bizarre, it's because Milly, who is 5, has a fairly vivid imagination.
Sam has also made up some gorgeous aprons for the market. I don't have a photo of those ones, so you'll just have to come to Geham to see them. It's really close now. Not much more than a week away on 19th & 20th September, and it's just a short drive north of Toowoomba on the road to Crow's Nest.


  1. Such a sweet photo, I love all those dolls sitting on the couch. Looks like a family portrait!

  2. Oh gosh, they will be so loved! What a generous thing to do. All those children. even boys will love these if she puts pants on them and gives them brush cuts....kidding..
